|Jun-19-08|| ||Phony Benoni: Not a bad pun, but I would have preferred "Taufik Jam".|
Nonetheless, a very nice game.
|Jun-19-08|| ||NewLine: How about <19.f4>
Isn't it the correct respond?
|Jun-19-08|| ||grasser: 19.f4 Nxd3
20.Qxd3 Bf5 and Black is a pawn ahead.
25.Kg2 Rxe3 leaves Black with 3 pawns for the piece.
|Jun-19-08|| ||abstraction: <Phony Benoni: Not a bad pun, but I would have preferred ...> How about this one -- very obscure, I wonder if anyone will get it: "Taufik never made it to Darwin"|
|Jun-19-08|| ||WannaBe: Another one of the 'Worst Pun Ever' nomination of Caissar...|
|Jun-19-08|| ||natrix75: how about Darwins?|
|Jun-19-08|| ||Chameleon88: My favourite variation,hehe|
|Jun-19-08|| ||mezzieh: Of course 'Darwin's Theory' was an alternative pun as well as 'Darwin lies blow'.|
When Knight goes from c3 to a4 it must be a combination on enemy Kingside. And when the second Knight goes off the board there must be a Bishop sac in prospect. This time a deadlock in center gave White nothing...
|Jun-19-08|| ||hedgeh0g: Sometimes it's better to Laylo if you're going for Darwin.|
|Jun-19-08|| ||bjessee: "Laylo, Darwin won't you ease my worried mind"
Much like everything else, this game would have been better with a Duane Allman solo.
|Jun-19-08|| ||AAAAron: I'm back, yeeeeaaaaaahhhh!!!!|
|Jun-19-08|| ||kevin86: White is threatened with mate and the loss of the queen. He has no defense.|
BTW,did Mr. Laylo's chess abilities come by intelligent design or did they just evolve? lol
How about:"The feds are coming,so it's time to LAYLO"?
|Jun-19-08|| ||Phony Benoni: <kevin86> Forget it. <bjessee> wins hands down. Give him the Darwin Award.|
|Jun-19-08|| ||kevin86: <Phony Benoni> Are you trying to tell me to "fuhgettaboutit"? lol|
|Jun-19-08|| ||zb2cr: White is facing the threat of ... Qh4#.
28. Qf2 opens him up to 28. ... Rxf5#.
28. Rh1, Rxf5+; 29. Qxf5 (forced), Qxf5+; 30. Kg3 leaves Black with a Q+2P vs. R+N for a long-term winning advantage.
|Jun-19-08|| ||inthestepsofTal: 27.Ke5!? with the idea Rxf5+ Kd6-c7-b6 is nicely refuted by 27...Re8+!! 28.Kxf6 Qh4 mate|
|Jun-19-08|| ||whiteshark: <grasser>'s line
<19.Bxe5 Rxe5 20.gxh3 Rg5+ 21.Kh1 Qd7 22.f4 Qxh3+ 23.Qh2 Rh5 24.Qxh3 Rxh3+ 25.Kg2 Rxe3 <leaves Black with 3 pawns for the piece>> looks drawish after <25.Kg2>

with most likely <25...Rxe3 26.Rad1 Rbe8 27.Na4>
|Jun-19-08|| ||Jimfromprovidence: I like 18 f4. It forces the knight to exchange with the white bishop or retreat and opens up the game for both sides.|

|Jun-26-08|| ||patzer2: Black's demolition of pawn structure with 18...Bxh3! gives him excellent winning chances, especially if White misses the only equalizing line with 19. Bxe5 given by <grasser> and <whiteshark> above.|
If Black is worried about White finding the 19. Bxe5 = line, then he could always try 18...Qe7 with the idea of bringing the Queen to h4 for an attack on White's King position.
